Another new box for another square

So, I have a Starrett six inch double square. And any of you who have a Starrett square know they are great squares but they come in a card board box. Always seemed kind of cheap so I decided to make a new one. It matches the case for my combo square set I built a few weeks back. It’s made from maple with walnut accents. as with the other cases I plan to use a few rare earth magnets to keep it closed.

Really nice box, even if it wasn’t for a square.

That is a very nice box and protects the tool.

I make sure I cut them square and just a good tight glue joint. If I’m sure glue is on the entire surface of the miter then the chance of failure is pretty low. I’ve made close to a hundred boxes this way and have only had a few fail, and always due to not enough glue on the miters.
